Always stop in during regular visits to London. Staff always friendly and nice to get some tranquillity first thing in the morning. Scrambled eggs and bacon is a favourite!

This is a nice spot for an inexpensive breakfast if you are staying in the neighborhood. The food is good and the staff is nice. It is close to Victoria station if you need to get on the underground after breakfast also.

Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
